"America" the bear Beanie Baby was made in honor of 9/11 and has a solid blue body, embroidered American flag on the chest, glossy black plastic eyes and nose, and is finished with a red, white, and blue grosgrain ribbon tied around the neck.  America was born on September 13, 2001 and retired on March 20, 2002.  America rests on its bottom, is filled with polyester fiber and P.E. pellets, and measures 5" across the arms and is 8 1/2" tall.  The 9th generation swing tag is attached and is in very good condition, with only a hint if a crease.  The 10th generation tush tag with morphing hologram is in good condition and the bear is in pristine condition, with no flaws.  

The Poem Inside the Swing Tag

In memory of those who lost their
lives in the national catastrophe that
took place on September 11, 2001.
We mourn for them and express our
deepest sympathy to their families.

About Beanie Babies

Beanie Babies are a line of PVC pellet-filled toys created by Ty Warner in 1991, reached their peak in popularity in mid-1990s, and ceased operations in December 1999.  Due to popular demand, Ty Inc. restarted in 2000 with a Beanie Baby named "The Beginning."  The nine original Beanie Babies released in 1994:

  • Legs the Frog
  • Squealer the Pig
  • Spot the Dog
  • Flash the Orca
  • Splash the Whale
  • Chocolate the Moose
  • Patti the Platypus
  • Brownie the Bear
  • Pinchers the Lobster

Beanie Babies have two identification tags:  the heart-shaped swing tag, and the fabric tush tag attached to the bottom.  Over time, the tags were redesigned to include poems inside the heart tag, date of birth, font changes, and the addition of yellow stars.  These changes are referred to as Tush and Heart tag "Generations," and there are currently 15 swing tag generations and 13 tush tag generations.  Some tags contain spelling and date errors which can lend greater value to the Beanie Baby.
